Music Exalts Life


"If you look deep enough you will see music; the heart of nature being everywhere music."
--Thomas Carlyle

This is one of my favorite oil paintings, probably painted by a Sunday artist.
Music is held in such high regard in our family. All four of our children play a musical instrument; involve music either in their careers or life in general. The "kids" are already fighting over who gets this painting after I'm gone!

This post will join others at Weekly Words to Live By at Notes From a Cottage Industry.
Be sure to check out other inspirational quotes there.

Pin It!

funny thing ...as we speak I'm redesigning an old piano bench ... very french-y legs and all ..as I painted the inside I imagined all the vintage sheet music that had adorned the two large compartments ...

this painting charms the socks off of me!

Dearest Delores,

Just great to hear you have 'kids' who LOVE music! That compliments you; no wonder you own this lovely oil painting...

Greetings from Georgia,

My kids all played musical instruments too. Now that they're all off to college I miss those having the music flow through my house!

BTW...I'm in love with the beautiful photographs on your blog! :)
